That being said, I'm not sure how to resolve Me & My Uncle > Big River which I accept without question.
Subject: loud and jammy
1st set makes my ears want to pop
Subject: Dirtywater nailed it.
The whole band is really on this show-- really tight and very loose. Jerry is in absolute top form the entire show-- really, really crisp playing. Sure, I'm partial because I was there, but I would be hard pressed to think of another show where he played better.
I also thought Kreutzmann and Hart were an extra step above their usual standard of excellence. One of them once said their goal was not to be two drummers, but instead be one drummer with eight arms. They were about as close to doing that here as I could ever imagine.
Charlie Miller does an absolutely primo job on the recording-- the mix is superb-- the exchanges between the band members are all there for the listening. Manor Downs was a tough place to get good quality recordings from-- lots of wide open space that just ate lots of dynamic range in most recordings. Charlie has made this recording just about as good as it could possibly be. Thanks Charlie.
Kirk from Nashville-- wish you could have made the trip--you would have loved it. But, your Pez made its own unique and valuable contribution to the show--if not the long, long drive back. Thanks Kirk.
Subject: It Musta Been The Heat
Maybe someone out there was in attendance and could report on the venue and the scene that day. It sounds to me as if the heat effected the P.A.'s performance until after the sun went down? I don't know, but...
Regardless of all that, from Music Never Stopped until Morning Dew the GD flies Translove Airlines and gets us there on time with no verbiage to spare. They blast right thru them as if there was no break and what they spread is a great place-setting of classic tunes, yes, a veritable banquet out on the veranda. Ribs, Corn on the Cobb, Baked Beans, Cole Slaw, Potato Salad, and Rhubarb Pie.
During UJB there is a slight buzzing and semi loss of signal. The players fumble the beginning of Truckin' a bit before they just sort of abandon it and then go pell mell back into it. Oh, my synapses! Truckin' is hot with a great post jam meltdown into Dew, which is not an epic version, but adequate. Despite a tremendous boost in sound during Saturday Nite and Don't Ease these songs were mere afterthoughts. They sounded drained.
Because of the slightly distorted recording, the quality this show only merits a 4, but it is generally so well played it makes up for the glitches. You can't always get what you want. and Sometimes it gets too hot to even think about what you want.
Subject: really good
Subject: I love this show
I love both sets. The first set is solid, with no real weaknesses. Candy Man was great and Red Rooster, It's All Over Now, Brown Eyed Woman, and Deal are crackling with energy. The Music Never Stopped has a fantastic jam at the end.
The one disappointment on the second set is with Uncle John's Band. They blew a stage monitor towards the end of the song. On my audience tape, you can hear a little of the static (as well as Garcia telling the crew to "fix the fucker"). The band does lose it's pace a little, but the problem is quickly fixed and the band powers into an incredible finish to the song, slamming into Truckin. On this recording, the static is much more pronounced and the soundboard guys are making some adjustments, which is also distracting, and can cause the listener to not pay attention to an incredible jam that is filled with drama.
But that is a minor flaw in a great, great, great performance.
I had always wondered why this show wasn't a candidate for Dick's Picks. Now I know.
Subject: A real gem!
Perfect setlist. Tight playing, high bouncing energy. Good sound, not AA+ maybe just an A. All the boys a present and nicely balanced.
Better than the other SBD source.
